Description Steve Arnold archtester gentoo-dev 2005-09-05 15:56:08 UTC
This should probably be the default since 2.6 headers/kernel is now the default, 
if I'm not mistaken...

The current /etc/hotplug/scsi.agent still uses the old form:

5)          TYPE=cdrom ;

for CD-ROM, while scsi.h in 2.6 uses TYPE=rom instead.  There could be a simple 
patch for 2.4 headers...

sys-apps/hotplug is useless with any recent udev version, and 2.4 kernels are no longer supported. Unmerge it and move on.
